2019 is right around the corner, and starting your dream hardwood flooring project is a perfect resolution for homeowners in Charleston and the Lowcountry area. While most people ring in the new year with a countdown and fireworks, here at Floor Coverings International of Charleston we celebrate the upcoming season of interior design and flooring trends. Leave 2018 behind and explore the next year in hardwood floors below!

Authentic and Natural

Next year, trends will still be all about staying true to nature and effortless design. Homeowners are shying away from overly manufactured and staged appearances because it is rare to find anything in nature that is completely smooth with machine-like perfection. Luckily, hardwood floors instantly bring natural beauty into any room. For the most solid and authentic-looking floor, consider opting for a hardwood with a high variety in color, prominent wood graining, and more random plank sizing. For these reasons, distressed and reclaimed hardwood floors will not lose steam as popular staples!

Tone Extremes

This upcoming year we are keeping an eye on the darkest darks and the lightest lights. A rich, deep, dark stain creates an elegant and modern interior. In fact, a deep green matte color will be the “it” accent color next year, which will pair wonderfully with dark hardwood floors for the best moody rooms. Off-white tones and wood stains will be popular for light, open, and airy interior design goals. No matter what tone you choose, flat and matte colors are trending more than ultra-shiny floors.

Two toned hardwood flooring is going to be a popular choice as well. Combining light and dark tones increases variety, texture, and visual interest. The middle of the road color gray, which has taken over in recent years, may or may not be on its way out in terms of popularity. We are still keeping an eye on that one for Charleston and the Lowcountry area homeowners!

More Choices

In years past, the only way to achieve the look of hardwood floors was to invest in solid planks. But as flooring technology progresses, more alternatives are developing. Consider engineered hardwood flooring for example. The top layer is real solid hardwood flooring and the bottom layers are composed of other plywood or fiber woods. Compared to laminate or vinyl, you are still bringing the element of real wood into your home.
